Introduction

XBAP (XAML Browser Application) is a new Windows technology used for creating Rich Internet Applications.  There is always a confusion between WPF, XBAP and Silverlight. Developers get confused which one to go for while designing a project. Here I will explain all the 3 technologies with the differences and a sample XBAP application.

WPF applications are divided into two categories.

  • Standalone WPF Application
  • XAML browser applications (XBAPs)

 

XAML browser applications (XBAPs) combines features of both Web applications and rich-client applications. Like Web applications, XBAPs can be published to a Web server and launched from Internet Explorer. Like rich-client applications, XBAPs can take advantage of the capabilities of WPF. Developing XBAPs is also similar to rich-client development.

It is used for creating heavyweight .Net applications that take advantage of the full capabilities of .Net 3 Framework.

This page is substantially plagarized from MSDN content, and probably other sources. It is unprofessional to copy other people's content and claim it as your own without citing the sources.

Hello Ithyan,

XBAp apps run in partial trust mode. So they can't use WCF services in .NET framework 3.0. But framework 3.5 has some improvements over 3.0. So in framework 3.5 we can use WCF in partial trust mode for.

Thanks.
